Apple iPad 2 vs. Motorola Xoom

I think everybody noticed until now my disappointment related to the iPad 2. It’s not only me who consider this new Apple release just a useless vaunting but many of those who are constantly reviewing tech gadgets feel the same as I do. Well, we all have a solid base to do this. Until now, a lot of bad news came from those who bought iPad 2. You can see their resume here, here and here.

Here we offered you some alternatives to iPad 2, which you may want to reconsider, now, that all these bad news are available and things aren’t anymore what they seemed to be before the tablet’s release. But now I want to insist on a tablet which is much better than iPad 2 and is even cheaper than it: Motorola Xoom.

Here you can find a full review about Motorola Xoom, but now let’s compare it with Apple’s iPad 2:


  • What we have?


First, let’s take a look at the new iPad 2: it sports a black or white unibody, is thinner than its elder brother, the original iPad, 33% lighter than it, and thanks to an integrated A5 chip, twice faster. It has faster graphics, up to 9x, and the same consumption power. It has the best tablet battery life from the market, thanks to its incorporated 3 mini-batteries.

Second, we have Motorola Xoom tablet. It has a black unibody, runs Android Honeycomb OS, a dual core Tegra 2 processor and a display of 10.1 inch. Other features of this tablet are 1024 MB RAM memory, 5 megapixels camera with auto-focus and a maximum memory card size of 32 GB.


  • What are the differences between Apple’s iPad 2 and Motorola’s Xoom?


Both tablets have their strengths, let’s admit it. Once, the Xoom tablet runs Android, which we all know that is much more permissive than iOS is. Also it is coming with a 4G upgrade and Flash support. In the same time, iPad 2 has some of the best apps that can be founded on the market. You can choose from more than 65,000 apps available on App Store, while for Motorola are available only 16 specific apps. But this is not as bad as it seems since very soon most of the Android smartphones apps will run on Xoom too.

The price is a strong argument in the Xoom’s favor. While a two year contract agreement for a 32GB 3G iPad is 729 dollars, for Motorola’s Xoom tablet with the same features and a free 4G upgrade you will have to pay only 600 dollars. Actually, this is cheaper even than the 16GB 3G Apple iPad 2 model, which costs 629 dollars.

Another argument is that the web browser runs faster on Android than on iOS. I have just written an article about this and you can read it here. Yes, the test is available also for tablets.

But I can bet that you already guessed my favorite argument. Yes, you can say that I am a hater, but I really think that Apple is going down. While iPad 2 received a lot of complaints, guess how many received Motorola Xoom? None, exactly. At least none that I know.


  • Who wins the fight between iPad 2 and Motorola Xoom?


Without any trace of subjectivity, in my humble opinion, Motorola Xoom is wearing the winning flag. It has the same specs as iPad 2, a much cheaper price and no available complaints about it. If you don’t believe me, feel free to compare both tablets’ specs below. The red lines represents the best feature:
